You have read Keith's book ? Maybe there is some truth to the his theory . Maybe did cowrite some of those songs Chuck took full credit for .. It is tempting to throw rocks at such an unsavory man . But we should be careful to to take it too far . But at very least there are those lyrics . "Too Much Monkey Business" begot "Subterranean Homesick Blues" begot "Pump it up,," , etc.

I have. Not negating Chuck's huge influence, just hoping more folks learn of Johny's contributions.

Yeah, "Team Johnny" on this one. The way Keith idolized Chuck, and still does, I can't believe he would take Johnny's part on this if he wasn't firmly convinced of the truth of it, which, as a non-musician, is good enough for me.
Got to see Johnny play as part of Ratdog once. Didn't really "fit" but it was still cool as hell to see.
